“If AI is so easy, why isn’t there any in this room?” asks Ali Farhadi, founder and CEO of Xnor, gesturing around the conference room overlooking Lake Union in Seattle. And it’s true — despite a handful of displays, phones, and other gadgets, the only things really capable of doing any kind of AI-type work are the phones each of us have set on the table. Yet we are always hearing about how AI is so accessible now, so flexible, so ubiquitous.

3D printing has changed the way people approach hardware design, but most printers share a basic limitation: they essentially build objects layer by layer, generally from the bottom up. This new system from Berkeley, however, builds them all at once more or less by projecting a video through a jar of light-sensitive resin.

Don’t worry, this rocket-launching Chinese robo-boat is strictly for science

By | Artificial Intelligence, Asia, autonomous vehicles, Boats, China, climate change, Gadgets, Hardware, Robotics, Science, TC

It seems inevitable that the high seas will eventually play host to a sort of proxy war as automated vessels clash over territory for the algae farms we’ll soon need to feed the growing population. But this rocket-launching robo-boat is a peacetime vessel concerned only with global weather patterns.

Autonomous subs spend a year cruising under Antarctic ice

By | antarctica, Artificial Intelligence, Gadgets, Robotics, Science, university of washington

The freezing waters underneath Antarctic ice shelves and the underside of the ice itself are of great interest to scientists… but who wants to go down there? Leave it to the robots. They won’t complain! And indeed, a pair of autonomous subs have been nosing around the ice for a full year now, producing data unlike any other expedition ever has.
